Deobandi Quoting "Hadith" That Shuyukh and Ulama are Like Prophets


The major Deobandi scholar, Mulla Rashid Ahmad Gangohi (1829-1905), cited the following alleged “Ahadith” of the Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) which are related to the subject of Khatam-an-Nabuwwah (Finality of Prophethood):

کیونکہ جناب رسول اللہ صلی اللہ تعالے علیہ وسلم کا ارشاد ہے کہ ”شیخ اپنے مریدوں میں ایسا ہے جیسے نبی اپنی امت میں“ اس کے علاوہ آپ ص نے اپنی امت کے علماء کو بنی اسرائیل کے انبیاء کے مثل فرمایا ہے

Translation: Because the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) has said: “The Shaikh among his disciples is like a Prophet among his Ummah” and apart from this he (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said that the Ulama (scholars) of his Ummah are like the Prophets of the children of Israel.

Reference: Imdad-us-Suluk; p.65

  2. The Promised Messiah (as) said:

    "Another aspect of the Holy Prophet being Khaatamun Nabiyyeen is that God, due to His pure grace, has embodied the
    followers of the Holy Prophet with marvellous capabilities; so much so that it is stated in a Hadith that:

    The scholars among my followers will be akin to the Israelite Prophets.

    Although the compilers of Ahadith have called it into question, the light of my heart declares this Hadith to be authentic, and I accept it without demur. And none have negated this Hadith through the medium of vision either; if anything, it has only found confirmation."

    [Al-Hakam, 17-24 August, 1904]

There is No Prophet After Me. Meaning of بعد

Our interpretation of La Nabi Ba'di to mean no prophet that is in opposition to the Shari'ah of the Prophet and is not his follower ...
